2023 is truly the year of OLED gaming monitors. We recently posted the news about BenQ’s EX480UZ and LG’s UltraGear 27GR95QE OLED gaming monitors. Now, it’s Asus’ turn to announce the availability of its OLED gaming monitor – the ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM. Like LG’s, the PG27AQDM is a 1440p QHD monitor with a refresh rate of 240Hz. It’s slightly smaller at 26.5-inch but retails the 0.03ms response time. Unlike its competitors, Asus implemented a custom heatsink and “intelligent voltage optimization” to minimize or prevent OLED burn-in. The ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM is now available to order at Newegg.com here. You can check out the rest of its features and specifications from the official news release below.
ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces Availability of Swift OLED PG27AQDM Gaming Monitor in North America
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced that the ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM gaming monitor is now available. This 26.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) OLED gaming monitor features a blazing 240 Hz refresh rate and 0.03 ms response time to deliver superfast frame rates for truly immersive gaming, plus NVIDIA® G-SYNC® compatibility for tear-free, smooth visuals.
Improved OLED Gaming Longevity
To ensure OLED longevity, the Swift OLED PG27AQDM includes a custom heatsink for heat-generating components and a new internal layout to improve cooling. Internal airflow has been optimized with enlarged air vents for improved heat dissipation.
The Swift OLED PG27AQDM also includes the intelligent voltage optimization feature, which ensures consistent luminance for each pixel by controlling the amount of voltage applied. ROG worked closely with the panel maker to determine the correlation between OLED brightness, voltage level, and operational temperature. A smart algorithm coded for the panel optimizes voltage based on temperature changes to ensure the luminance uniformity across the OLED panel.
The Swift OLED PG27AQDM features an anti-glare micro-texture coating to reduce reflections from ambient light sources for a better viewing experience. The ROG-exclusive Uniform Brightness setting decreases peak brightness to keep levels consistent, even when changing the size of bright white windows.
The new ASUS DisplayWidget Center software allows users to easily change monitor settings and OLED-related functions via an intuitive interface, without accessing the OSD menu.
Premium ROG Aesthetic & Specifications
This monitor delivers astonishing HDR performance and a peak brightness of 1000 nits. A 99% DCI-P3 gamut, Delta E < 2 color accuracy, 1,500,000:1 contrast ratio and true 10-bit color depth ensure exceptional color performance, enabling the Swift OLED PG27AQDM to showcase the darkest black hues along with high perceptual brightness.
The Swift OLED PG27AQDM features a new look with a more futuristic and super-slim style, finished with a tripod socket on the top of the monitor for mounting devices such as webcams. Its extensive connectivity options include one DisplayPort™ 1.4 port, two HDMI® 2.0 ports and a USB hub.
Pricing and Availability
The ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM (MSRP: US$999) will be available at select retailers, including Newegg, Amazon, Micro Center, and the ASUS eshop.
Limited preorders are now available at Newegg.com here.
